About us


The Caroline Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in support of brain cancer research in memory of Caroline Vandemark who lost her life at 22 years old, and her father and the former president of the Caroline Fund, Charlie Vandemark, 61.


Together, we can raise the awareness and funds necessary to conquer brain cancer. We remember those we have lost and we support those who are suffering - we will not go quietly, we will not back down.

Positivity Cures!


Thanks to you

Since 2013, the Caroline Fund has provided over a quarter of a million dollars to support cutting-edge brain and spine tumor research conducted by Caroline's neuro-oncologists and surgeons at the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Thank you to our loyal and committed donors, sponsors, runners, walkers, and volunteers. We couldn't do it without you!
